The concept FERMO emerges as a tool to investigate the role of molecular orbitals used to describe the chemical bonds. Thus, calculations were carried out with a set of phosphines. Our data suggest that different molecular orbitals, beyond HOMO, can be used to describe the behavior of acid-base reactions.
